"I created DONDA- which is a context experience and product company... I'm actually working with Vanessa Beecroft who is actually a performance artist that comes from the art world." -Kanye West, Ellen Show, Sept. 19

I know of Vanessa Beecroft. She creates racially charged art pieces where she often fetishes the black body or uses them as props/accessories in her work.

A film maker reviewed her in a documentary in 2008 when Beecroft went to Sudan and specifically wan
ted to adopt twin Sudanese babies so that she could photograph them for an art project:



The documentary explores Beecroft’s experiment in Sudan, in which she attempts to adopt two Sudanese orphans and use them as subjects in her work. Wise to theory, Beecroft says her adoption will be “not just fetishization of the blacks. It will be a beginning of a relationship with that country.” The film documents the significant gap between Beecroft's theory and her actions.




Upon her arrival in the Sudan, Beecroft hurries to set up a photo shoot, hiding the cameras from the orphanage's sisters, calling the babies “these poor creatures.” Which baby should she photograph? “Either one or the other,” she says, “it doesn’t matter.”
Repeatedly, Beecroft claims that she “loves this culture” — but, in the film’s most disturbing scene, sisters from the orphanage try to stop her from stripping the children nude inside their abbey for an elaborate photo shoot. Beecroft refuses, complains, starts shooting again, and eventually loses a physical confrontation with one of the sisters, who takes the children away from her, furious that Beecroft is stripping children naked inside a church. “Christ, these people,” Beecroft moans, as she barricades herself inside, pushing a pew up against the door to keep the sisters out of their own abbey.


Other images from Beecroft's performance "art." Kanye is working with her on his Yeezus tour among other projects.


She was the creative director behind Ye's Runaway video


The documentary shows Beecroft arranging 30 African women across a white floor , trailing red paint across their still bodies.




"Is it difficult to work with 30 black women?" a spectator asks. "Yes," Beecroft replies. "It is very stressful."



Her penchant for darkening the features of the models used in her work, the casual disregard for the environment she is in, and even her positioning as a white woman who wants to make the world aware of these issues plays into longstanding issues with neo-colonialism and racism.

1. She is an artist, interpreting the world as she sees it.
AND
2. That artists can be influenced by racism and colonialism, even as they are trying to make a statement about one of these topics. -Racialious.com

I don't know why I clicked. The pure hate from her, Kanye, Lily Allen, Miley, Don Lemon, and everyone else is just too much.

I just need saturday to come so I can be away from this ish for a week.

this is as bad as it gets...no one in the Sudan has a weapon they're interested in using?

i guess it really is time to just let go of all things Kanye...where do we go from here, Yeezy?
